The relationship between Medvedev and Tsitsipas has gotten a lot of people talking, not only tennis players but also a section of concerned fans. The two have not seemed to be in good books like early on after their disagreement in Miami 2018. However, they have tried as much as possible to hide their feud, just to assure their fans all is well. Recently, alongside Kyrgios they boarded a private jet to attend to the Rogers Cup in Montreal. This latest occurrence has greatly raised eyebrows on whether the two youngsters have resolved their issues or not.
The 2019 Rolex Shanghai Masters saw Zverev weigh in on the so-called weird relationship between Tsitsipas and Medvedev. He admitted that indeed the two youngsters had what appeared to be a strange relationship. Besides, he confirmed not having any issues with neither Daniil Medvedev nor Stefanos Tsitsipas. Eventually, the German swore that he was not going to poke his nose in the personal youngsters’ issues.
“Stefanos and Daniil have a weird relationship a little bit. So I will leave that to them.
I have a very good relationship with Daniil since we’re kids, and I’m having a good relationship with Stefanos now since the Laver Cup. So whatever they have, they can leave it for themselves. I’m not going to get involved. I’m not going to say anything about it.”
When Tsitsipas insulted Medvedev
Before, the ill-fated row in Miami 2018, Medvedev and Tsitsipas were in what seemed to be a wonderful relationship. Despite their cutthroat competition, they still got along pretty well. Nevertheless, their friendship seems to be in jeopardy after their unexpected open argument in Miami.
Medvedev had taken a seven-minute break after the second set, an incident that prompted Tsitsipas to take a five-minute toilet break during the critical third set. Furthermore, the Greek failed to apologize for hitting the net cord and what followed was a tense argument between the two. Below is a video of the two tennis players involved in a serious on-court dispute.
Just recently, Tsitsipas came out to apologize following his on-court disagreement with Medvedev. The Greek claimed that he was never in for a fight with the Russian thus it was his temper and frustration which took the better part of him hence losing his nerve.
Fans are not sure whether Daniil and Tsitsipas will resolve their issues soon. In the meantime, the two are certainly not seeing each other eye to eye. Medvedev has played down rumors going around that he was the Greek player’s friend. Despite the two traveling in the same private jet, they are not great friends.
Tsitsipas and Zverev Relationship
Zverev and Tsitsipas have been in a great relationship ever since they met during the Laver Cup. The two tennis players usually speak highly of each other. Although they do not meet quite often, no news about the two getting into an argument or fight has hit the headlines. They are going to face off in various competitions, but that will not mess up their good relationship. On whether they are ever getting to disagree only time will tell, but for now their relationship is fine.
